N.B. Students will also be able to book a one-on-one appointment with resident pipe-maker Éamonn Curran over the weekend to discuss any maintenance issues. The course director will be in touch to coordinate this.
Due to the packed nature of the programme it is not possible for the student to be able to attend every concert! You are more than welcome however to forego any of the programmed workshops/events if you prefer to attend a particular concert. Again the course director will be able to facilitate this.
